Back in Time


tEREUy1vSfuSu8LzTop3_IMG_2538Last night, I have finally finish all my work and have a moment to breathe. Actually, it’s a few hours to breathe before I have to jump back to work or worse, prepare for my upcoming test.

To fulfill my fun today, I decide to take a whack at the Daily Prompt, which is interesting, it says, “Congrats! You’re the owner of a new time machine. The catch? It comes in two models, each traveling one way only: the past OR the future. Which do you choose, and why?”

If I have a new time machine, I would choose to go to the past. That being said, I assume I won’t get stuck in time (I can come back to the present) or anything catastrophic (like out of fuel or that the fuel is something ridiculous like Plutonium) that happens in movies like Back to the Future. I am most likely to go back in time to learn about American History.

You’re such a geek! Why do you need to go back in time to learn about history when this is what history books are for?!

The thing is, I think history textbook is kind of bland, it’s all about the important figures. What about the help? There’s never anything about them. So I want to go back in time to learn some of the real stories about the unimportant people instead of reading one of those made-up fiction, although I am not saying they are all made-up but I’d like to confirm.

Oh, and not to mention all those TV shows and movies about the conspiracy theories surrounding the Founding Fathers. I like to know if it’s true. The only thing to find that out, go back in time to the 17th and 18th Century.

After I learn about that, I’d then like to travel to early 20th century. A lot to learn there too. I know this sounds like a waste of time for some of you but I’ve been fascinated with American History ever since I began learning it in 7th grade. There are a lot of things that happened in the past 200 or 300 hundred years and I like to know more and why not get the knowledge the fun and adventurous way. I get to learn about the mechanics of a time machine and get to travel back in time! Woohoo!

By the way, what’s up with the daily post page?

  1. Good one! I think I’d go to the past, too. History is interesting…now that I’m not having to memorize dates and such for a test in school. The movie “Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure” is kind of like that. They found an interesting way to present their history report! 🙂

  2. The WP prompt page changes at 1pm each day for me, and it took until about 6pm before the prompt page showed any of the day’s responses. I also had to update my post to make it show up on the prompt page once they started filtering through. It’s getting silly!

    • The page acts weird sometimes. For me, the prompt comes up at 6 am and it was when I checked at about 11 am that any of the pingbacks came on. It’s quite frustrated when the pages doesn’t update.

  3. I agree with you — but it doesn’t sell novels! I pitched my second novel, Savior, by explaining how it was about unknown people… The agent said he had no interest in unknown people. My believe is that unknown people are the most interesting…

    • Me too. History has always been told in the important figures’ point of view and it feels like it’s missing the other half of the story. It’s like a judge only hearing the police side of the story and not the criminal’s side. So, I too believe the unknown people are the most interesting.
